Citat:Washington removed thousands of tactical atomic weapons from Europe after the Cold War ended. But 180 of the B61 bombs remain in Europe, the only American nuclear weapon still deployed on the continent, at NATO bases in Germany, Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands and Turkey.

Citat:The expense of hosting nuclear bombs is not one that European nations are willing to pay. At the same time, most nuclear bases in Europe do not meet Pentagon security standards, and NATO countries would have to spend more than $100 million to be able to meet standards set by the United States.
While Turkey is reluctant to remove the B61 nuclear bomb, Germany has been the leader in advocating for the removal of the B61 nuclear bomb. If Germany is successful in removing the bombs based there, then other European nations are likely to follow suit.
